Only a single report of this spot being haunted can be found on the internet so it’s best to treat it as dubious, at best. Supposedly however room 217 is haunted with a ghost that prefers the television on and its guests not be bed hogs as it’s prone to tugging on the covers.

  1. About 5 years ago, I was working a security job for the Long Beach Car Show, which took place at the Rainbow Lagoon. I was working this event with my police partner, as we were working off-duty for his security company. The night before the event was set up, we were posted up on the top of the grassy knoll area, next to Shoreline Dr and the parking structure of the Long Beach Convention Center, near the 3 large rocks. The area was gated with a temporary chain-link fence which encompassed the aforementioned area, and went around to the area prior to the water bridge. At this time, there was only one classic car at the location, parked near the bridge, approximately one city block away from where we were sitting, on folding chairs. It was a cold night (approx 58 degrees), but not a chilly night. As my partner and I were talking, I saw what appeared to be a person inside of the classic car. My partner and I went over to investigate, and there was no one inside the locked vehicle. We walked back to the chair, and, again, I saw someone inside the vehicle. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me, so I didn’t say anything to my partner. Moments later, I saw, what appeared to be three oblong objects, the size of a child, peaking out from behind the large rocks. Again, I saw the objects peaking out, and moving to one of the other rocks, again peaking out, as if they were children playing hide and seek. At this time, my partner said, “I can feel what you are looking at. My back has goosebumps right now. Are you looking at ghosts?” “II’m not sure what they are, but they’ve been there for a few minutes. I didn’t want to say anything because you’d think I was crazy.” At this time, my partner turned around and described to me exactly what I was looking at. “Holy shit,” he said, “no one would ever believe this.” The apparitions continued the same activity, then floated on over to the empty stage which was set up. They were moving around the stage like children playing tag, and they would jump off the stage to the grass and climb back up the stairs to the stage, repeating the same activities. This went on for a few minutes, as we watched in awe. The weather became extremely cold at that time, as we each covered ourselves in blankets we brought with us. “Let’s take a walk,” I said, as I was shivering. We walked down the pathway, to the bridge, near the lake, and we turned around to see the apparitions playing on the stage. I asked my partner what time it was, and it was 12:10 am. The air was many degrees warmer at the location we were standing at. Just then, I saw an apparition, which looked like a black colored object, similar in size and shape as the other apparitions, racing towards me from the location we had just left. Right before it hit me, it continued around me disappearing a few feet away from me. “Did that thing hit you?” asked my partner. “No. It went around me. You saw it too?” I asked. “Yea. It was like a small black transparent ghost flying right at you. I thought it hit you,” he said. After this, we talked about our experience for awhile, then returned to our chairs. We stayed at the location until 8:00 am, and we had no further experiences. I never returned to the location, but I wonder if the same type of activity happens on a regular basis, at 12 midnight.

  2. Back in the early 90’s I stayed at this hotel (Renaissance) and I can’t remember the room number. I turned off the TV and grabbed my briefcase when all of a sudden the TV turned on by itself and the shoulder strap of my briefcase snapped back and hit my eye glass frame. I was lucky the lens did not crack. Most straps come with a plastic buckle/catch but mine was metal. The metal buckle was cracked in half. I did not switch rooms since I don’t scare easy. Not sure if it was natural or supernatural so I did’nt report it. But I must say it was a freaky experience.
